Dr. Barry Sears Dr. Sears Comments:

Sugar (like all high-glycemic carbohydrates) is bad because it causes elevated insulin levels.  But the elevated insulin levels caused by all high-glycemic carbohydrates combined with high levels of omega-6 fatty acids become a disaster because the combination of the two accelerates inflammation.  Maybe he should have read The Zone before he wrote his book as that is where the concept was first discussed 20 years ago.
